An afternoon stroll led us to an exceptional early dinner at the West Loop's overachieving Monteverde. We then headed over to the Music Box eatre for a dose of contemporary lm noir, before ending a most enjoyable evening with a couple of Painkillers at Three Dots and a Dash, an ultra-cool tiki joint tucked away o€ N. Clark Street. The following morning, it was all aboard for a little sightseeing by way of a 90-minute Chicago Architectural Foundation River Cruise on First Lady Cruises, part of Peninsula's Keys to the City program. The boat tour up and down the Chicago River sheds an unexpectedly fresh light on the city's ever- changing, soaring skyline, along with stunning views of landmark skyscrapers and iconic buildings like Marina City, the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower. at afternoon, following a brief dawdle to shed our sea legs, and a spot of casual lunch at The Publican in Fulton Market, we ventured into the pre-rush hour traŠc for an exclusive custom tour with celebrated historian Liz Garibay, an encyclopedic authority on the history of Chicago, in the hotel's 1946 Packard Clipper. Our chau€eur assured us that this beautifully maintained vintage vehicle would attract plenty of attention; he was right. As we soaked up Liz's anecdotes and facts about the city's fascinating history and stunning architecture, we also took pleasure in the admiring looks on the faces of passers-by. I wish all my history lessons had been like this. Noted mixologist Vlad Novikov pours one of his craft cocktails at Z Bar 78
